2019/2020 WAALI Facilitators: Kim Salac & Ariana Nazari
Women’s Asian American Leadership Initiative (WAALI)
The Women’s Asian American Leadership Initiative (WAALI) is a student-facilitated and MSS-sponsored leadership development program for 2nd, 3rd, & 4th year Asian/Asian-American women identifying students. For 2 hours a week within an 8-week span in the Fall Semester, cohort members will be able to learn about leadership in the context of their intersection of identities within Race and Gender. WAALI is a discussion-based program that allows participants the opportunity to share their stories of being an Asian American woman and how that relates to leadership.
Some topics that are covered include Asian American Women in the Media, Asian American Women in the Workplace, Wellness and Emotional/Mental/Physical Health, and many more.
Phase I Recruitment for the Fall 2021 Cohort concludes in April of each year. Phase II allows any students to apply in late August/Early September of the new academic year. If you are interested in applying, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
